Pogliaghi was Basso by the late 80s...they're reasonably well regarded and have their fans, but I'd qualify them as firmly B list in terms of price/reputation. It looks like a repaint to me, but I don't know pogs well enough to discuss the decals. Price is OUTRAGEOUS IMO. Around 3x or 4x what I'd consider fair value for CL in my area. If it's late 80s/early 90s, that seems like an odd parts choice, but he's probably wrong on the year. It's definitely too late to be a Sante frame. I wouldn't even talk to the guy at that asking price.
There's a mistaken belief by many sellers that EVERY European frame from the 80s is valuable and collectible, and it's just not so.
